nice quiz. Should be published or at least editors pick
Nov 6th, 2009 at 17:57 GMT
Quoth the raven, "Eat my shorts!"
Nov 6th, 2009 at 18:26 GMT
"Nevermore" in the title should be lowercase and in quotations.
Nov 6th, 2009 at 19:23 GMT
I love this poem.
Nov 6th, 2009 at 20:15 GMT
I smacked myself in the head when I saw that I missed "Lenore."
Nov 6th, 2009 at 20:32 GMT
this is one of my fave poems
Nov 6th, 2009 at 21:31 GMT
damnit. I guessed "Forevermore", completely sure it was in the poem, typing it in on at least three separate occasions. and what pops up as an answer? 'evermore'. Grrr.
Nov 6th, 2009 at 21:45 GMT
D'oh. Very unhappy that I missed one, but it's only used once. I love Poe. His essay on how he allegedly came up with The Raven is pretty interesting from a literature nerd standpoint.
Nov 6th, 2009 at 22:34 GMT
I used to have this memorized. So, not anymore.
Nov 6th, 2009 at 23:54 GMT
I tried to memorize this in high school, only made it as far as "explore"
Nov 7th, 2009 at 00:24 GMT
more counts along with nevermore, but not evermore?

VILLIANS! TIS THE BEATING OF HIS HIDEOUS HEART!
Nov 7th, 2009 at 00:49 GMT
o sorry thats the tell-tale heart
Nov 7th, 2009 at 01:12 GMT
Apperently Poe originally wanted to use a parrot. Atleast thats what my Lit. book tells me
Nov 7th, 2009 at 02:48 GMT
I read that essay too, I think it's a bunch of bogus, but it's interesting nonetheless. Quoth the server: "404"
Nov 8th, 2009 at 20:55 GMT
I had this essay memorized for a public speaking class... but quoth this quiz, "not anymore."
Nov 9th, 2009 at 13:21 GMT
Do you think Poe went through the same thought process as Sporclers who don't know the poem - "Hmm, what else rhymes? Chore? Spore? Ooh, adore!"?
Nov 12th, 2009 at 19:53 GMT
I know Poe used it as a rhyme in the poem, but "o'er" is not an actual rhyme of any of the words listed here. It is a slant rhyme at best. For it to be a rhyme, "o'er" would have be pronounced like "ore."

I couldn't get The End of the Raven, by Poe's cat, as discovered by Henry Beard in Poetry for Cats, out of my mind. One night as the rain was slanting I awakened to the ranting of the man I catch mice for...

I love this poem, and at one point in my life had it pretty much memorized. Not so much anymore, I kicked myself for missing a few of those, especially evermore. Poe did write some great stuff, might have to pick up my book of his complete works again.
Dec 13th, 2009 at 19:05 GMT
once upon a midnight dreary, while I pondered weak and weary / on Sporcle quizzes unto which my brain I did outpour / I came across a quiz on rhyming, all the while the timer timing / as I racked my brain as to achieve the highest score / and when the answers were revealed, myself I did abhor / as for the quiz, I'll rate it 4.
Dec 15th, 2009 at 01:11 GMT
so i just get out mu copy of the raven and type in ending words? Is that about it?
Dec 26th, 2009 at 09:21 GMT
Oof, that was difficult. I need to read the directions more carefully- definitely kept typing in "nevermore."
Jan 11th, 2010 at 22:30 GMT
Thanks to The Simpsons and the Alan Parsons Project song "The Raven," I did well on this. I typed in "before" and "shore," however, and for some reason it did not accept them. :(

I thought to myself "no way is 'store' in there", but I was stumped, so I typed it in on a lark.
